(as stated at the beginning of my attempt to recreate all fifty of Sania Pell's beautiful projects,
I may slightly alter the project to fit my own need for the item in my current life.)
I adapted her "sewing bag with fabric corsage" into
Valentine's Day bags for my little boys to take their goodies to school in.
Materials and Equipment
Heavy Fabric such as ticking, denim or canvas
Tape measure and long ruler
Pencil and scissors
Pins, needle and sewing thread
Fabric or grosgrain ribbon for handles
1.Mark and cut fabric to the desired size.
2. Turn under and in, press and pin. Machine stitch in place close to the turned under edge.
3.Fold the rectangle in half crosswise with right sides together. Pin the raw edges together along both sides. Press the seams open.
4. Add handles of the desired length, machine stitching each handle to the bag.
5. Add embellishments to the bag.
A bit of hand embroidery really added a sweet touch to the finished bag.
